Sweet Stamps Challenge #61 Dutch Fold Card

Today is our sixty-first challenge on the Sweet Stamps Challenge blog.
This week the challenge is a DOUBLE DUTCH FOLD CARD!!!

Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree!!

 First here is a tutorial for the Double Dutch Fold for you to try!!

 The focal point of the card are the Fanciful Butterflies Set.  I stamped them on Vellum with White Dye Ink embossed with White Fine Detail EP.  The coloring was done with Creative Inspiration Paints Blush and Sky Blue.   I detailed cut them.  They are mounted on Cheery Lynn's XL4 Circle XL Stackers and XL5 Scalloped Circle XL Stackers.  The bottom panel is stamped with the  Baroque Border using Distress Clear Embossing Ink and embossing with  White Fine Detail EP.  The greeting is my favorite Happy Birthday.  The pearls were made with a White Viva Decor Pearl Pen. The DP is from First Edition's  6x6 pad Springdrop  The finished size of the card is 4.25" x 5.50".

Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!!
